Thats caust I posted it on one of the forums way back so I could make better. But I'm not a good story teller and tried evey every thing I could think of to make it better and it didn't work (AD&D the only game I know). So sents you so good at this, why don't you make it non-D&D and give it a better back story then!!!!! Go to Comment
Yes, im sorry if you got the wrong idea. I am a extreamily pessimistic person, so anything i can find wrong with anything i will yell it out for all to hear. I didn't mean to insult you, I too, have made a few items that have been rather unorigional to others. But back to my previous comment, im sure it is not something that ive seen at this site, so it wasn't you i heard it from. Go to Comment
An interesting idea - it can be made non game specific simply by indicating that the drinkers will be affected by magical rage and leave it at that. Timing, how to resist, etc, can be implemented by whoever uses it.
What this post really needs to improve it is _why_ the lake causes rage? Is there an imprisoned evil god buried in the sediment below the waters? Did 100 berserk demons die in a battle eons ago on the site? Etc. Go to Comment
Perhaps the rage effect preceded the druids' falling out: Let's say the lake of rage was where millennia earlier (gleefully ripping off Valadaar's idea!), a legion of demonic Furies were bound into the living stone. The druidic ceremonies on the site were meant to keep the Furies' baleful influence from contaminating the land, but the druids eventually fell under the sway of the very power that they struggled to confine. Overcome by a mood of demonic wrath, they fought until only a handful were left.
As time passes, the spells binding the demons gradually grow weaker and their influence grows stronger... Go to Comment
I just made up my own version :), while reading the name. It was built by Giant Wasps, under the guidance of the high priestess, Enessa Xygg, in honor of the god of industry and insects, out of actual specially-treated wasp nest paper! sorry it's late I'm loopy. Go to Comment
An insignficant little species, the candlebug (or waxmoth) is a persistent bane for mages and merchants alike. Each the size of a small digit, these little scarabs thrive on wax and burrow up inside candles, ruining them. Sometimes a late-night worker will hear a crack and a sizzle as his candle expires, only to find the half-burned remains of a waxmoth squirming around on his desk. This is very annoying in worlds where candles are expensive...
